    Can anyone advise me on how to paint my truck body?

    I'd be pretty careful about painting the cab yourself. Seen several home done jobs in the past and they always look crap!

    I for one am sick of hearing that old chestnut about the flipping bus.

    2.5 Tekna Now in the 2.3 Tekna which is the new model. Slight loss of power but a massive improvement in fuel economy. I don't drive particularly fast anyway

    No issues whatsoever, in all liklihood I will end up buying another one. I have had 3 over the past 10 years and have never looked elsewhere. Decided this time to look at the other options. I still keep coming back to the Navara though. New Mitsubish shape out later this year, not sure i'm a fan. Talk of a Ford Raptor also, although its looking a bit pricey.....and well, its a Ford, regardless of how nice it looks.

    Is this the thing that detects what vehicle you're driving in and the appropriate speed limit? I'm in the market for a new 4x4 and after 10 years of Navara's i'm shopping around for a change.....this is restricting the amount of available vehicles though. When I was in the Nissan dealer the other day the guy I was speaking to wasn't even aware that some pick ups can only go 70

    Cutting it with Battery Power

    ECHO has introduced an all-new 58V battery chainsaw to their growing range of lithium ion outdoor power equipment. The CS-58V4AH has the cutting performance of its petrol counterparts, with the additional benefits of battery power. Low noise and low vibration are immediately evident in this effortless yet powerful product. It makes little noise when running, while the lack of vibration compared to a petrol model greatly reduces stress and fatigue for the user. What also makes a real difference to the working environment is the fact that with battery power you have no emissions, no fuel filling with two-stroke and there is no need to store petrol. The CS-58V4AH is easy to use. With battery power you just charge up and go! The chainsaw uses a 4Ah battery which gives you plenty of run time for logging and felling small trees, and the quick charger will have it rapidly charged to reduce downtime. The lithium ion battery also fits other 58V battery products in the range so you can run a trimmer, hedge trimmer, lawn mower and power blower using the same battery. Additional batteries can be purchased as a back-up for when you need to get on with bigger jobs without interruption. Using the chainsaw you’ll find the 0.043 gauge cutting bar gives a sharp and smooth cut and the automatic oiler gives the chain optimum oiling for longer life. There is easy side access to the chain tensioner to allow quick chain adjustment, and the oil tank is translucent for easy level checks. The power comes from the long-lasting brushless motor which requires minimal maintenance due to non-wearing parts, which means you save on servicing costs as well as petrol bills. For the home owner and semi-professional it’s hard to see why you wouldn’t choose the benefits of the CS-58V4AH. The chainsaw comes with a two-year domestic or one-year professional warranty and the 58V battery carries a two-year warranty for added peace of mind. You can find out more from your local authorised ECHO dealer, by visiting www.echo-tools.co.uk or call 0800 597 7777 for more information. View full record

    Sorry, you’d have had to have seen the movie ‘bird box’ to get the joke. But basically she goes everywhere blindfolded and uses a piece of string to find her way back

    Wood-chip for play areas

    Obviously avoid taking them a load of hawthorn or gorse chip

    Wood-chip for play areas

    Just put a disclaimer in it, ie tell them it’s not the same as the wood chip that would be recommended for play areas, however it’s a fraction of the cost

    Advanced chain sharpening.

    surprised at your comment about dropping a file size not working. My 461 never cuts better than when I run a 5/32 file over it at the end of the chain.
